2018 International Urban Design Award

Architect Maxim Atayants, St. Petersburg, Russia believes it is important to create a continuous, human scale urban fabric that provides a hospitable background and setting for people’s lives. He believes cities need a fabric of urban blocks, and a hierarchy of roads, streets, boulevards.

Atayants has designed nine new neighborhoods around Moscow over the last decade. Many are already built, sold and inhabited by more than 25,000 people, and some new neighborhoods are under construction and in design.
